Fashion Recap: 2013 SAG Awards Red Carpet


Last night marked the 19th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards and, as with other award shows, celebs showed up dressed to the nines. There are tons of fab fashion choices to discuss, so let’s get to it! Scroll on down to scope out some of the most memorable looks of the night.

Top 5 Best-Dressed

Here are my picks for best dressed at the 2013 SAG Awards, in no particular order:

Amanda Seyfried in Zac Posen

Amanda Seyfried showed off her bombshell best at the SAGs in this navy blue Zac Posen gown. The ultra-flattering mermaid silhouette added a dramatic touch to this form-fitting gown, while the long, Art Deco-inspired necklace was a stylish and unique choice for the red carpet. Glamorous, side-swept waves and a dark smokey eye completed this look.

Sidenote: Amanda had a red carpet twin! The amazing Jennifer Lawrence also rocked a similar strapless blue gown from Dior Haute Couture at yesterday’s ceremony. While I liked both dresses, Amanda’s was my favorite of the two — whose navy gown did you prefer?

Michelle Dockery in Chado Ralph Rucci

Michelle Dockery wore one of my fave looks at the Golden Globes a few weeks back, and she once again brought her fashion A-game for the SAGs. The Downton Abbey actress opted for a vintage black satin Rucci gown, which she paired with edgy gold jewelry and a metallic clutch. The sheer paneling on either side of the dress offered plenty of sex appeal, which gave the overall look a sultry, yet understated vibe.

Marion Cotillard in Custom Dior Haute Couture

The gorgeous Marion Cotillard absolutely killed it last night in custom Dior Haute Couture. The two-toned gown had a classically chic vibe, which Marion played up perfectly with black pointy toe pumps and elegant Chopard jewelry. Also, we loved the contrast between the formal gown and Marion’s sleek and playful asymmetrical bob.

Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen

I’m a sucker for a fabulous crimson-colored dress, so naturally I was drawn towards this strapless little Alexander McQueen number. Jessica Chastain complemented this red hot (pun intended!) gown with a super-sparkly Harry Winston necklace, then styled her locks into soft waves. On Twitter last night, Zephyr likened this voluptuous look to Jessica Rabbit and I wholeheartedly agree! What did you think of the Zero Dark Thirty star’s ensemble?

Naomi Watts in Marchesa

Naomi Watts is a chameleon when it comes to red carpet fashion — she can pull off absolutely anything! Just two weeks ago, at the Globes, she donned a dark and moody Zac Posen gown, but she switched things up this time around with an ethereal white dress from Marchesa. The intricately beaded gown simply screams luxe and Naomi kept things glam with a glittery box clutch and an Old Hollywood-inspired ‘do.

Other Notable Ensembles

There were so many noteworthy ensembles last night– we wish we could talk about each and every one! However, since there simply isn’t the space, we’ve narrowed it down to four looks that made quite the buzz on the red carpet.

Nicole Kidman in Vivienne Westwood

The always stylish Nicole Kidman showed off her fashion sense yesterday by opting for this midnight blue Vivienne Westwood gown. The ornate applique work was simply exquisite and, when combined with a sheer neckline and thigh-high slit, gave this dress a wow factor. Nicole kept her hair simple, center-parted, and flat-ironed (to mixed reviews), then accessorized with a trendy pair of emerald green earrings.

Claire Danes in Givenchy

In a stark contrast to her slinky Golden Globes frockHomeland‘s Claire Danes went with a fashion-forward Givenchy gown for last night’s ceremony. With its long-sleeved, one-shouldered neckline and black-and-white geometric detailing, one thing’s for certain — this LBD anything but boring! Claire then amped up the drama with a deep, wine-red lip and an oversized cocktail ring.

Kerry Washington in Rodarte

Django Unchained‘s Kerry Washington has been nailing it on the red carpet this awards season, and the embellished white Rodarte gown she chose last night was no exception. The sculptural, corset-like top half combined with the flowy column skirt created some awesome contrast, which Kerry complemented with diamond drop earrings, a metallic clutch, and a sleek ponytail.

Anne Hathaway in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture

SAG award winner Anne Hathaway’s Giambattista Valli gown can best be described as one of those love-it-or-hate-it type looks. While some critics lauded her fun and youthful take on a timeless silhouette, other fashion commentators disliked the gown’s sheer tulle skirt. Tell us what you think — was Anne’s look a hit or miss in your eyes?

Least Favorite Look

You know we can’t like everything that comes down the red carpet. Here’s one look I simply didn’t care for at last night’s event.

January Jones in Prabal Gurung

First things first, I love that Mad Men‘s January Jones picked out an on-trend black and white Prabal Gurung gown. However, I was less than impressed with the overall styling of this look. In my opinion, the Ziggy Stardust-esque coif and heavy makeup worked against the dress rather than complementing the fashion-forward frock. Do you agree with my choice or did you like January’s red carpet look?

Your thoughts?

    I agree with you on January Jones’ dress, it looks like she’s wearing a bib. I looooove Amanda Seyfried’s dress though!

    I LOVE Amanda Seyfried’s dress, but I think Michelle Dockery’s is a bit unflattering.

    I loved what Kiernan Shipka wore! :) It was so pretty, flattering and age-appropriate! I totally agree with Marion Cotillard being the best dressed of the night. Pretty disappointed that she wasn’t nominated for an Oscar for her AMAZING performance in Rust and Bone. :( Girl is really stepping up her game, fashion-wise, as far as award ceremonies go. And did anyone else notice how amazing Jennifer Garner looked? :D So happy and content!

    I agree with Amanda Seyfried and Naomi Watts but the rest aren’t even close to my top choices. Nina Dobrev, Jennifer Lawrence and Sophia Vergara would be my picks!

    I super disliked Chastain’s dress for a simple reason: the fit was off. It was WAY too tight, so much so that I was pretty sure I could see her uterus. The stretching of the fabric on her pelvis is just so unflattering. She’s so pretty, she could have gone up a size and gotten it taken in to be just perfect.

    Amanda Seyfried get the award from me! She’s got to be my favorite out of this list because her gown flatters her and she looks put together. Side note: I love Anne Hathaway’s look, it’s fun and quirky and I’ve notice her wardrobe selections lately have been more youthful which I kinda like.

    I love Anne Hathaway’s look! But I’m so enamored with her lately that I’d probably like her in pretty much anything.

    That being said, the first look shown was so gorgeous everything else felt almost a little disappointing after it.

    Amanda’s dress was gorgeous. Anne Hathaway’s attire was definitely not notable. What about Jennifer Lawrence. She looked gorgeous.

    Aside from Amanda Seyfried (who looked stunning), I found the top five to range from underwhelming to slightly unflattering. Marion Cottillard’s really wasn’t my favorite (it was too Sweet 16 from the waist up), and Jessica Chastain’s dress made me achy and uncomfortable by proxy.

    Amanda’s dress was dazzling

    Best dressed award goes to Amanda :) I love the beautiful color and mermaid style design. Worst dressed award goes to Anne Hathaway.
